The Change You Have Been Looking For: Trump to Meet With Romney to Discuss Possible Cabinet Position

President-elect Donald Trump is reportedly planning to meet with Mitt Romney.

The meeting will take place this weekend, a senior Republican source told CNN.

The two will talk about governing and a possible Cabinet post, according to a CNN producer.

  1. in 2012, the only time Romney appeared to have energy and "a twinkle in his eye" was when he talked about expanding the military. I wonder if he's being considered for Secretary of Defense?

  2. Wow consider me a fool for believing that Trump was any kind of an outsider. I wasn't completely blind to the possibility that it was all just theatrics but I fully admit that I bought into a lot of it. The "dislike" between the candidates and MSM/Hollywood being almost united against Trump added credibility too. They put on one heck of a show.

    Note that I had already lost almost all faith in Trump after Rudy, "Lyin' Ted" and the other neocons were part of his admin but this Romney talk is pretty much final confirmation for me that he's a total fraud.

  4. Trump must have thicker skin than I thought he had, considering the way that Romney tore into him during the primaries.

    1. Business people usually have a thicker skin than the average person. You have to be able to compartmentalize in order to advance your own cause against adversarial obstacles.

  5. Bob, I have to question your sanity at this point. Perhaps consider changing your blog's name to Target Clickbait. This is that absurd. Trump is meeting with Romney. Do you have any solid info from a named source in the Trump team? No. Since you know CNN lies, why else to report breathlessly on their content-free post? This meeting will amount to nothing. Only CNN says, apropos of nothing, what the subject of discussion is. Trump is not stupid (this should be apparent by now), and he doesn't forget. There will be no cabinet appointment, and likely nothing else. Maybe an ambassadorship in Ukraine...

  6. Actually I agree with Shimshon and disagree in part. CNN does lie; Trump is (reasonably) smart. BUT a Romney Sec. of State makes sense two ways: One, the Sec. of State will do the President's bidding so Trump will call the tune and Romney (the dog that he is) will obey. Second, I believe Romney would need Congressional confirmation and that might be easier than trying to get through crazy Rudi Guliani or the wing-nut Bolton.

  7. Maybe it's a power play. Romney also ran for president. Now the guy obeys orders from the guy who ACTUALLY became president. Making Romney secretary of state means he's officially a subordinate of Trump. Trump can order him around and tell him what to do. Maybe that's how his mind works, who knows.

    1. Same with Priebus. As I said about his appointment, now the Repub establishment reports to Trump.

  8. Priebus wasn't a disloyal snake. Never happen. Romney could just as easily shined Trump's shoes.

  9. How politics shape principles.

    Trumpistas: "Yes! Trump will drain the swamp and shake up the Establishment! Those Neo-cons will be running for the hills!"

    --- Mitt Romney being considered as Secretary Of State ---

    Trumpistas: "Well, that sounds like a good move, because well, you know what they say, keep your enemies closer and, besides, uh, the guy has experience and it would make Trump look magnanimous and sooo....

    WELL, SO WHAT? HE'S BUILDING US A WALL, SO JUST SHUT UP!"

  10. Thanks for re-posting CNN. I don't understand why Trump gets bashed? All he's done is choose two people for his cabinet. Obama wasn't even bashed this much on this site.
